TextBoxBase.ForeColor Property

Gets or sets the foreground color of the control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

abstract ForeColor : Color with get, set 
override ForeColor : Color with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color
A Color that represents the control's foreground color.

You can use the ForeColor property to change the color of the text within the control to match the text of other controls on your form. You can also use this property to highlight a specific text box that contains an invalid value.

To change the background color of the control, use the BackColor property. When setting the ForeColor property of your text control, ensure that the color you choose does not cause the text of the control to disappear. For example, if the ForeColor and BackColor properties are both set to Color.Black, the text within your textbox control will not be visible.

This property might be over ridden if the ReadOnly property of the TextBoxBase is set to true.
